Feeds’n Needs, a pet-passionate story

Before owning 13 stores in Atlantic Canada and well before establishing a team of over 80 staff members, came a passion to devote ourselves to the well-being of animals.

Making knowledge accessible for the love of our pets

Feeds’n Needs is premier animal feed and supply retail division of Shur-Gain/Trouw Nutrition, a company that is well known for its constant efforts in understanding how to optimize animal nutrition and health. Before our stores existed, all of this knowledge was only accessible to the wholesale market. In the early years, Shur-Gain had four main feed production plants in the Maritimes, with small retail spaces within carrying essential animal health and farm maintenance products. With so much growth in the industry, came more opportunities to take our passion for animal well-being to the next level and expand our retail locations: making our expertise available to not only animal owners, but pet lovers like you and us!

Friendly advice from one
animal lover to another

Feeds’n Needs now proudly operates 13 corporate stores across the Maritimes, and is a place where you are free to ask for advice while sharing a warm shopping experience. Our 80+ experienced retail staff members are carefully selected (only real pet lovers are hired!) and thoroughly trained to offer you the best expertise through friendly, personalized and courteous customer service.

All your pet’s needs

At Feeds’n Needs, our staff understands that all pets are different and require different needs. To ensure animal well-being and a great shopping experience, we carry over 20,000 products, spanning across multiple categories (farm, wild bird, to home decor & so much in between) to ensure our customers are equipped with the supplies they need.
